Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, and Kanye West Among Hacked Celebs
Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, and Kanye West were among the artists whose YouTube channels were hacked on Tuesday (April 5th) morning.
According to the Daily Mail, multiple accounts had bizarre videos uploaded, including one called, “Justin beber – Free Paco Sanz (ft. Will Smith, Chris Rock, Skinny flex & Los Pelaos)”.
Paco Sanz is a Spanish criminal currently in prison for defrauding thousands of people by pretending to have a terminal illness.

Additional celebrities affected include Justin Bieber, Drake, Eminem, Harry Styles, Travis Scott, Taylor Swift, Lil Nas X and Michael Jackson.
